Yeah, I’m taking this comic seriously and I can’t just fling a page out a day. Alas.
However, I have some work done, here is a preview:
Stark contrast to the shiny cover. The guys haven’t been colored in, but we can pretend they’re just really well camouflaged right now.
Which suddenly made me realize they should all be invisible because they have the resources to do that and are sneaking around.
How do I draw a comic with invisible characters?
I may have to rethink these starting pages.
At least the delay gave them sounder tactics…
But the point of all of this is: I realized I should make this challenge a bit more like NaNoWriMo and less like my art challenge. I still succeeded at NaNo without daily telling people my progress, and I would never show anyone my nano work as I made it, that would be a disaster and I wouldn’t even try. And with a comic, I think it’s much better to work on drawing it daily, and only posting when I’m ready. I can still talk about my progress each week and keep working on it. Much more sensible.
And now I guess I’ll just draw some relaxing, scary backgrounds as the invisible band of adventurers move forward and go to…where they’re going….
I’m glad I called this whole thing an experiment. Having it be flexible is the best way to keep me motivated. Plus, I’ve been wanting to draw some other digital art, but I felt like I couldn’t work on it if I had to draw 5 comic pages each week. I think I’ll post an update on Friday since that’s when I started and figure out just what I want this challenge to be.
It’s all trial-and-error cartooning from here on out.
Edit: Also, this gives me time to make a webcomic website instead of spamming my blog with a page a day.
